Zinedine Zidane doesn’t want to make many changes in the squad but there are some footballers who should leave the club during the summer. Pepe is already out of the club after refusing to renew his contract for one more year and he was furious with the coach and the president. Fabio Coentrao will leave the club after missing the celebrations of the Champions League title.
Another player who will leave the club in the summer is Mariano Díaz. The Dominican striker had a lot of offers during the winter transfer window to change team and go on loan to a First Division club. However, he rejected all the offers because he thought he would have opportunities with the first team. However, in the most important games of the season, Mariano was out of the list and he barely play in the last months of competition.
Considering his situation, his best option is to leave the club in July. Real Madrid want to sell him to a top flight club and include a buy-back clause. This formula was used with Álvaro Morata and Juventus with success. The club doesn’t want to give him on loan as they did with Asensio or Vallejo because they think the situation is completely different.
There are several clubs that would like to sign Mariano Díaz. The one that has showed more interest until now is Betis. They are starting a new project with Quique Setién on the bench and they want to reinforce the team. With Rubén Castro having problems with the justice, Mariano Diáz could be the perfect replacement in the attacking line, according to AS.
The striker has also offers from international clubs. Eintracht Frankfurt have also asked about him. Seferovic signed for Benfica, so the forward position is vacant. Real Madrid have a good relationship with the German team after the deal with Jesús Vallejo, who played on loan at Frankfurt this season.
